Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore (2121-70 and OC-65) is a bright neutral white paint color. This color is perfect for trim, cabinets, walls, and exteriors.
When trying to find the right white paint color, the hardest part is that they aren’t all 100% pure white, most have subtle undertones.However, if you are looking for a bright, crisp, white paint color, this will be the perfect fit for you!
Benjamin Moore describes Chantilly Lace as “as delicate and refined as the lace it was named after, this crisp, clean white evokes images of pure silk, soft linen and simpler times.
Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is an indicator of the amount of light that is reflected by a color when it is illuminated by a light source. Chantilly Lace has an LRV of 92.2, making it Benjamin Moore’s brightest white.
This color is a clean white, so it is more impacted by its environment than anything else.It isn’t a cool white, since there are no blue or green undertones, but if you have cool north-facing light, it may cast some of that slight gray/blue light back into the room.
Chantilly Lace is a really nice crisp white paint color, with minimal undertones.However, cool northern light can create that slight gray/blue cast that we inherently get with bright whites.
It is a great color for cabinets and trim details. The clean white gives off a bright appearance, that isn’t too stark.
